Council’s role in an emergency

Although Council is not emergency combat agency, we have an important role in emergency management within our Local Government Area (LGA). Council through the Local Emergency Management Officer provides support to the lead response agencies (eg, Police, RFS and SES) for the prevention of, preparation for, response to and recovery from emergencies impacting on our community.

For minor emergencies such as blocked public drains, damage to local roads and fallen trees within Council's parks and reserves, please contact us on: 1300 434 434.

Northern Beaches Local Emergency Management Plan (EMPLAN)

The Northern Beaches EMPLAN (March 2021) was developed by the Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC) which includes members of the emergency services and support agencies including Council.

The EMPLAN aims to:

  • clearly define roles and responsibilities of responders and community partners
  • demonstrate a level of preparedness by the LEMC
  • inform disaster management responses at region and State levels
  • detail how support will be co-ordinated to a combat agency and affected communities
  • provide a flexible set of arrangements that can be used a cross reference by LEMC
  • ensure compliance with the State Emergency and Rescue Management Act 1989
